At the SPS press conference 26.11.2014, Manfred Stern, President and COO of YASKAWA Europe GmbH, pointed out that YASKAWA is turning more and more into a Total Solution Provider for the markets.
To enforce this development YASKAWA offers new products which close gaps between the PLC world and Drives & Motion. The SLIO CPU iMC7 is a good example for that. It connects e.g. the new Sigma-7 servo drives or inverter drives via EtherCAT with a compact CPU and is open to HMI, teleservices and computer networks. An important key is the SPEE D7 Studio development environment. After describing the advantages of the new Sigma-7 series,
Mr. Stern and Mr. Schlenk discussed the YASKAWA Green Performance Solutions, which will become more and more important. Saving and reusing energy is a major contribution to achive the European Union‘s climate change goals.
